I have talked to you before.
My website is Http://

Anna Washburn was born in South Carolina, we believe that she is a sister of or related to Gabriel Washburn who was also in the area. Of course we know Anna married Henry Dye about 1785 in Chester Co, SC. South Carolina Court Records indicate that Henry made his 1st land purchase about 1785, this was usually done when a young man was going to be married or was married
his father John was a witness to this purchase. The land was sold in 1799, when Henry moved to Rutherford Co, NC.Henry Rented land but eventually made land purchases in Rutherford Co, NC.
We know from the Court records of Rutherford Co, NC that Henry died about Apr 1808.
His land was divided among his sons.
We know that Anna Remarried between 1812-1816 to Casper Von Weber. She was his 2nd Wife, Rosannah Humphries being the 1st. We have the Deed of Gift as proof of this. Casper died in 1818, leaving Anna his widow, In 1833 Gilbert and Thomas lost the land that belonged to Henry, Anna bought some land on Rosses Creek and then Sold it a year later making a profit, She moved in with Gilbert and Priscilla whom by 1840 removed to Spartanburg Co, SC. About 1847, John Dye, Henry and Anna's son left for McMinn County, TN and Gilbert and his family, and mothers accompanied them to McMinn Co, TN. Now I have done extensive research on the Dye line over the years. I can tell you that Anna's Dates supposedly came from a Family Bible that Priscilla Harrill Dye kept.
I have never seen once ounce of proof this book existed.
I have also never seen any proof that Anna didn't die in McMinn Co, TN or proof that she made the trip to Missouri.
If someone could produce a copy of this Bible record that actually said this then we would have a viable record, until then.. well it is hearsay. I might add that her maiden name was Washburn has also never been proven. I never seen any record that indicates it, it is supposedly family knowledge, in Genealogy, without proof or record it is hearsay or assumption only. It very well maybe wrong information. We have been hearing about this phantom Bible record for over 12 years that I know of. That said,
This is about all the information we have on Anna today.
In order to determine where she was born you have to look at the census records understand that the border between NC & SC was very undefined for many years during the revolutionary times. Craven Co, SC encompassed all of the Northern section of SC which today is home to Chester and York Co, SC. To this day no one has proven who Gabriel Washburn's parents are either, that I am aware of.
Thanks Sherri
